(3) This rule construes, applies, and elaborates on Department of Financial Institutions Rule R331-5 as it applies to industrial loan corporations in the issuance of subordinated capital notes or debentures.

R339-4-2. Definitions.

(1) "Affiliate" means any company under common control with the industrial loan corporation excluding any subsidiary.

(a) The following shall not be considered to be an affiliate:

(i) Any company engaged solely in holding the premises of the industrial loan corporation with which it is affiliated, and

(ii) Any company where control results from the exercise of rights arising out of a bona fide debt previously contracted, but only for the period of time specifically authorized by Rule R339-6-3(1)(j).

(2) "Capital" means the excess of an industrial loan corporation's assets over its liabilities detailed in the following accounts: capital stock, surplus, and undivided profits. Unpaid stock subscriptions are not part of capital.

(3) "Capital Stock" means the total of:

(a) the par value of all shares of the bank having a par value that have been issued; plus

(b) the amount of the consideration received by the bank for all shares of the bank without par value that have been issued, except that part of the consideration which has been allocated to capital surplus in a manner permitted by law; plus

(c) the amounts not included in Subsections (a) and (b) as have been transferred to stated capital of the bank, whether upon the issue of shares as a share dividend or otherwise; minus

(d) all reductions from such sum as have been effected in a manner permitted by law.

(4) "Company" means a corporation, partnership, trust, association, joint venture, pool, syndicate, sole proprietorship, unincorporated organization or any form of business entity.

(11) "Other evidences of debt" means notes payable, bonds, subordinated capital notes or debentures, maturing within one year, mortgages payable, accrued interest payable, and all other debt obligations, but not including any evidences of debt which involve a full recourse commitment where the department can readily ascertain that the person making the commitment is fully able to honor the same.

(12) "Subsidiary" means "subsidiary" as defined in Section 7-1-103.

(13) "Surplus" is a capital account which includes the amount received by an industrial loan corporation for its capital stock in excess of the par value of the stock, or, in the case of stock without par value, the amount designated as surplus of the total amount received for its capital stock. Surplus may also include amounts received as capital contributions. Amounts may also be transferred to the industrial loan's surplus account by the board of directors from undivided profits.

(14) "Total Capital" means the sum of capital, reserve for contingencies, reserves for loan losses, and the principal outstanding amount of subordinated capital notes or debentures not maturing within one year.

(15) "Undivided Profits" is a capital account representing the industrial loan corporation's capital in excess of its capital stock and surplus accounts. The amount represented by the undivided profits account may arise from net earnings of the industrial loan corporation or out of capital funds paid into the industrial loan corporation in excess of the capital stock and surplus accounts. Undivided profits may be used to absorb losses of the industrial loan corporation, for payment of cash dividends to stockholders or for transfer into surplus, upon appropriate resolution of the industrial loan's board of directors.
